No model numbers. Must be one of those theoretical questions.
Yes. It's called WDS (Wireless Distribution System). It allows a
device to simulaneously act as an access point (for client
connections) and to communicate with another similar WDS device, thus
acting as a transparent bridge. The catch is that both have to

What "device"? Computer, printer, NAS, other wireless device? Sorry,
without knowing what hardware you're contemplating or concealing, I
can't determine if it will work.
Note that many devices (of all types) have a "client mode" where they
act as an "ethernet client bridge" which can connect to an access
point. I can't tell for sure, but such a device may do what you're

Yes, with WDS and only with WDS. However, if the device has a "client
mode", it might also be possible to do something similar.

I have no idea as I have no clue what hardware you have to work with
and to what devices you are trying to connect.
